USA coach Sam Shweisky: China are a good team and they played very well today. There were times we executed well and we’re very pleased with that, but in the course of the match we hit well but had too many errors. We also had to deal with some injuries again today but we did the best we could do to fight. We’ll do our best to keep fighting tomorrow.

USA captain Joel Schneidmiller: We came out in the second set and struggled a little bit with the passing. We kept our heads up and kept fighting. It was just about us passing today and they out scrapped us on the defensive end. If we could have passed better on half of the balls and served a little better, then we would be in this game.
